Key Idea: Ping Golf is striving for perfection.

Hattie introduces us to John Solheim,  .  He told her that when famous golfers used a Ping putter on television, it immediately branded Ping  because at that time, the putter looked so different from all others.   Also, go to the case study guide and transcript of this episode of the show.

Think about it

What about the current situation in which you find yourself needs improvement? What really bothers you? What irritates you enough that you are willing to spend weeks, hours, months or years to change?
 
Starting a business by launching a new product is nearly impossible. You have to love the idea and enjoy the pain of doing something no one has ever done before. You can look for paths to follow or mentors to guide you, but so often you will find yourself very alone.
